I created this recipe after tasting a similar bread. The pumpkin and pudding mix add moistness while the whole wheat flour adds nutrition. It’s a perfect quick bread for this time of year, for breakfast or any meal.
My grandsons think this seasonal loaf is pretty special—so much so they took it with them to college when they knew they wouldn't be home for the holidays. It's destined to become a family tradition in your home, too. —Victoria Cooklin, Massillon, Ohio
“My family says our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner wouldn't be complete without this easy bread. I bake a variety to suit everyone—one plain, one with just nuts, one with raisins and dried cranberries, and one with everything.”
— Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
I love my Mom’s A-to-Z Bread, but the original recipe was a bit heavy on sugar and oil for my family. My version lowers the sugar and fat but retains all the flavor folks rave about! —Emily Carney, Grand Ledge, Michigan
We love this recipe around my house because we can change it from one day to the next on a whim. Just throw whatever fruit is in season into the mix, and you’ve got a tailor-made treat! —Christine Saxe, Ada, Michigan
